Skype VTC Interoperability – No limit to the number of users connected in a call

In the next blog in the Skype VTC Interoperability series, we look at how Videocall have added another enhanced feature to our service that connects Microsoft Skype for Business Online users with traditional room based SIP and H.323 devices such as Cisco or Polycom.

Here are the links to the previous blogs if you would like to find out more about Polycom’s RealConnect for Office365 solution, working with a single partner, ensuring you have a 99.9% SLA or how Videocall’s Super Ports can reduce your user costs.

There is a lot of interest in services that can seamlessly connect Microsoft Skype for Business to room systems to protect previous collaboration investment. Many room systems within companies still work perfectly and provide the high level audio and visual quality required to run business critical meetings. Yet there is demand from both the C-level and everyday users for use of Office365 for as much communication as possible.

It makes sense as an enterprise company to use your Microsoft licenses as much as possible, both in terms of overall cost, ease of supporting a single platform, and ease of use from the users point of view. If you have already invested in numerous room systems and don’t want to ‘rip and replace’ working technology, then a service such as Videocall’s Skype VTC Interoperability is the answer.

Whilst other services might limit the number of users and devices that can connect to any one meeting, Videocall understand that as an enterprise company you may need users at sites nationally or globally to connect from rooms at one time, whilst others arrive from Skype for Business Online. We do not limit the number of rooms that can be linked to users on the Microsoft Skype for Business AVMCU, and a large number will not impact on our highly reliable and secure service.

Of course, our service doesn’t just let Microsoft Skype for Business users talk to traditional room system endpoints. Users can arrive from their choice of video or audio enabled device, whether that be a mobile device, desktop or room. Videocall’s Skype VTC Interoperability is powered by our ICE platform, which was designed as the ultimate enterprise collaboration service and is used by many companies including Clarks, Britvic and Linklaters LLP.
